Marsh’ Runaway Delivery Rig (1901)
Runaway - Last Thursday at 3 p.m. as A. B. Marsh’s delivery rig was going around the P. S. Dudley corner going north the left front wheel flew off, and rolled into the Sam Boardman lawn, Ernest McIntire, feeling his underpinning give way, gave one of those leaps like he used to make himself famous with when reaching for high flies on the base ball field, cleared the wreck and landed on his feet. The horse with a swift plunge took charge of affairs, smashed into Sammy Johnston’s team and buggy, giving them all the mix-up they needed and more. The terrified beast whizzed around the Schroeder Saloon corner, overturning the tricycle vehicle, and was stopped, with the fills twisted off, his breath short and a wild eye in his usually peaceful head, in front of the place of biz of Alexander H. Holverson, Esq. The horse was unhurt, the rig little damaged, and Ernest found the lost nut up in front of Gilbert Johnson’s new sidewalk.
